This was my second visit and 4th class and I had a blast. The store has every kind of kitchen tool and accessory you can dream up and there are tons of cooking classes offered all year long. The staff here is so helpful and friendly. I will be back in October again!

The business is in walking distance from the hotel. They carry the most unique cooking and kitchen items I have ever seen. If you are a cooking buff this is the place for you. I hate to cook and I found it interesting. They have helpful gadgets for the kitchen. Great place.

I'm mainly reviewing the Macarons, Elegant Dinner and 50 Shades of Chocolate Classes, but as always I love the shop as well. It's on the expensive side but everything is high end so that's what you expect. The 3 classes I listed above were superb. The Macarons class was hands-on and we had excellent instruction. In fact, my macarons before... More

I have been to several cooking classes! The first time I did not realize you were given so much to eat. You are able to sample all of the food that is prepared and most of it is pretty good. I can honestly say that I have only prepared ONE item from any of the classes. I would suggest that... More

I attended classes here 3 years ago and the food was great. This time my experience was very different. The instructor was more focused on selling products then preparing the food. The food lacked favor and have to say this was the first class I walked away hungry. The class had 52 people and we were so tight it was... More

I love the classes here - I learned how to decorate cakes with fondant (bring your own cake to decorate), make macarons (took home 10 which were quickly devoured) and have taken many classes which demo different regional meals (complete with eating the food!) It's really fun to go any of the classes. My son also took a week long... More

The store promised that an item could be returned for store credit but when we tried this they refused accusing us of using the item which was absolutely untrue. You are much better off going to William Sonoma where you know you can actually return the item.

After placing the Kitchen Shoppe on my list of many places to visit I finally got my chance last weekend. It is a comprehensive, independent store for those that love to cook. Use your GPS to locate the store and keep going down Shady Lane till you find the large parking lot. You can find just about anything you need... More

I take lots of cooking classes throughout the world. This place is one of the best because it has several types of classes, i.e. hands on, demonstration, kid classes, green egg classes, and some beer and wine trips. They bring some excellent chefs in to provide classes. But do have some local chefs that provide classes too. The classes are... More

There was lots of cooking stuff to search through. It started with BBQ equipment and ended up with prepared items. I spent 45 in here and didn't make it through the entire place. The staff left me alone when I wanted to be left alone and helped when I wanted help.
